You know the dance. You know you've done it. The one every researcher does after finding something new. The one where you want to jump up and down and shout to everyone around that you found the document, contacted a cousin who has the family Bible, made a DNA connection or found a whole new branch to your tree. The one that is met with glazed stares and eye rolls.
Celebration Sunday is a place to share your discoveries.
This is a weekly series to enable everyone to tell about their Genealogy Happy Dance moment. This can be done by scrolling down and adding your story to the comments section. You may also put a link to a blog post.
My Happy Dance This Week: Being with family for Thanksgiving, sharing time together and making memories was worth doing that dance this week. Not all of my family could be together in one place, but I am so grateful for those who could join us. We spent the day at my parents home for Turkey and all the trimmings. Pictures were taken and we shared stories from the past. We took a few hours and cleaned out their shed for them and felt good about doing some service. It certainly helped to burn off some of those pies we had eaten! As per family tradition, we started the season by opening Christmas pajamas and all the children received a special ornament to hang on the tree that reflects what they had been doing over the past year. To end up the day we gathered to watch a Christmas movie. Happy Dance moments to remember. What was yours this week?
